P.A.W.S. of SWVA, Inc. (People for Animal Wellness and Safety of Southwest Virginia) is a non-profit 501(c)3 animal rescue group located in Wise County, Virginia. We have been in operation since 2002. Our funds help support the care of foster animals and a low cost neuter & spay program for adopted animals.
We are a group of volunteers working in our community with no formal facilities. We depend solely on tax deductible donations and volunteer assistance.
PAWS of SWVA requires an application to be completed and reviewed before adoption. This process can take around 2-5 days before a final decision is made. We do charge an adoption fee, $125 for dogs, and $60 for cats. To request an application feel free to send us an email!
